Aubergine / Eggplant


Aubergine or eggplant has nothing to do with an egg. It is named as such because its shape resembles an egg.

Contains
Beta carotene. Potassium.

Benefits
Although containing a good range of vitamins and minerals, it is not considered a food overflowing with nutrients.

It is believed to also contain phytochemicals that may help block the formation of tumours.


Other benefits
Used in cooking – provides interesting flavours, colour & texture to pasta dishes, soups and stews. However, aubergines when fried tend to absorb large quantities of oil. An alternative would be to brush aubergine slices with small quantities of oil and bake them in a hot oven until brown.

 

Caution
There is evidence that aubergine may increase the discomfort caused by arthritis.
